Very impressive line up of worldly entertainment can be seen right here in Whitehorse. Excellent seating and sound system as long as bone heads turn OFF their cell phone. Web site is the only thing that sucks about the Art Centre. Hard to navigate and harder to rely on for booking tickets.

Worthwhile catching a performance at YAC and the galleries are always full of pieces from talented artists.

When I moved here 10 years ago, I was amazed to find there was such a great performing arts facility here. This is a very intimate type of theater-not too big so every seat is a good seat.

Went to a concert last night at the Arts Centre. What an excellent venue for music. Small enough, tiered enough and very nicely organized. I would certainly recommend going if there's something happening there that you would like to see!

We attended an interestng and well-produced biography of Ted Harrison, the Yukon's most famous artist. It is a beautiful theatre with warm and friendly staff.

Did not expect to have access to such a wide variety of quality entertainment programs so close to the down town area. Take the time to check the program schedule while you are in town. It is worth it.

Beautiful theatre, great acoustics, lovely first rate art and exhibit gallery, nice staff and volunteers. This is a great place. Visitors should check it out for the fantastic displays of local artists' works and the beautiful grounds and view. We have super shows here too! Ballet BC, National Symphony Orchestra, Kurt Elling, to name a few. A super slate of... More

A wonderful facility ~ People don't expect to see this in the north ~ My favorite seat is the center of the balcony's front row . ~
